Preparation

For the salad:

  1. Chop all veggies and place them in a bowl. Squeeze the lemon juice on top. Chop the avocado and mush it into the veggies, mixing thoroughly with your hands.

For the mushrooms:

  1. Boil about 1/4 cup water in a pan (a small amount of water at the bottom of the bowl). Add your mushrooms and spices, and cook for about 20 minutes, or until they shrink well and are soft, making sure to mix them so they don't stick to the bottom of the pan. If you need to, add a small amount of water in the process.
  2. Add to salad once they cool down a bit.

For the Parmesan:

  1. Turn on your food processor, and throw in the garlic clove once it's going in order to chop it. Add the nuts and pulse a few times to break them up until they are the consistency of rice. Add the salt and nutritional yeast, and pulse a few more times.
  2. Top the salad with the Parmesan.
